About Port Nolloth


Established as a small-vessel harbour and railway junction in 1854 for the copper-mining industry, Port Nolloth's narrow, shallow entrance makes it unsuitable for ore carriers as history will tell. There are many shipwrecks along the coast, testimony to the treacherous coastline of Port Nolloth

Port Nolloth's main industry is marine diamond dredging and crayfishing industries and the only holiday resort on the Diamond Coast.

Dredgers and fishing trawlers etched against sunsets, clean beaches and the occasional antics of seals are made the more pleasant by good line-fishing and fresh crayfish aplenty. Fish and crayfish can be bought from the factory in season. Nama culture can be seen at Lekkersing, inland, north of Port Nolloth.
